Essential Points – Water Purifiers Filters
Older RO purifiers waste more water than they filter out. It wastes 3L of water for 1L safe water & reduces important metals like magnesium & calcium. RO Membrane will remove 80% – 90% TDS from water. But it also removes the essential minerals like calcium, magnesium, sodium, etc, and that’s one big disadvantage. To prevent that one must buy the right Purifier.
The UV filters are able to eradicate all the germs, bacteria, and viruses in the water. And they do not change the taste or colour of the water as they are chemical-free.
UF water purifiers remove even the dead bacteria and germs from the water. The only downside of the UF filters is that they cannot remove the dissolved solids from the water. That’s why UV+UF Purifiers don’t reduce TDS from water.
The Micro-Filtration system removes all the visible dirt. from the water. However, MF purifiers cannot remove dissolved salts or harmful metals from water.
Stay away from the TDS controller in any RO purifier. You may think that you are controlling the purification but actually, the TDS of water is increased by mixing non-purified water with the purified water; RO Membrane cannot be controlled.
Some people believe Kangen water is the best to prevent ageing & disease but there is no evidence that proves it. According to us, Kangen water = Placebo Effect. Placebo effects make you feel healthy after you drink Kangen water but this hasn’t been scientifically proven yet.
People are crazy about Alkaline Water. The human body maintains pH 7 and the human body itself manages this pH level no matter what you eat. When you drink alkaline water, the body will again maintain pH level & the change can only be seen in the toilet bowl. Essentially, you are paying high costs for what is going on in your toilet bowl.
- According to BIS, the TDS level should be 500 whereas acc to WHO, TDS should be 300.
- If the municipal water supply has TDS around 250, then you need a UF+UV filter & not an RO.
- For groundwater with TDS above 300, an RO is the best. It is easy to check the TDS level. Download VM-One Kitchen Appliance list. It has a TDS meter link with TDS that costs ₹300. You can check TDS yourself.
- Filters are prone to damage if the TDS level is above 1500 & the water pressure is less than 10 psi. Correct them asap.
- The life of the filter is 4000-6000L. After this, the filters must be changed.
- Water in Stainless Steel & Food Grade Plastic remains the same until they are not exposed to Sun. Buy the most suitable purifier.
- After-sale services & AMC are important. We called the companies & asked for their AMC & filter replacement charges.

KENT gives a 1-year comprehensive warranty. It costs INR 15,500.
Pros & Cons-
It comes with almost everything including RO+UV+UF or carbon. We don’t think UF is needed as the RO membrane is already there. TDS control is the worst thing as it fails the concept of water purification. TDS can never be controlled in the membrane. It can only be controlled he mixing unpurified & purified water. We think the idea of purified water is lost when you mix unpurified water with purified water.
UV + UF Water Purifiers
1. LIVPURE GLITZ | best water purifiers in India
Our best pick-in UV+UF purifier is Livpure Glitz with a 7L water capacity. It comes with 4 stage purification & 60L/H filtration capacity.

Pros & Cons-
It is cheap in price & the best the quality purifier. 60L/Hr filtration capacity is very good for small or medium families and for TDS up to 250. Cons- had its capacity been 8-10L instead of 7, then it would be good.
